What is ITR-4 form?

The ITR-4 form is designed for taxpayers who have chosen the presumptive taxation scheme under Section 44AD, Section 44ADA, or Section 44AE of the Income Tax Act. This scheme is intended to simplify the tax filing process for small businesses and professionals by allowing them to declare income at a prescribed rate without maintaining detailed books of accounts.

However, if your business turnover exceeds INR 2 crores (or INR 50 lakh for professionals), you will need to file ITR 3 instead of ITR 4. This is because the presumptive taxation scheme is only applicable within these turnover limits. When your income surpasses these thresholds, more detailed reporting is required, which is accommodated by ITR 3.

To file your tax returns, you can download the appropriate income tax utility from the official income tax department website. This tool will help you in filling out and submitting your ITR form accurately.

Until FY 2018-19 (AY 2019-20), it wasn’t mandatory to file an Income Tax Return if your total income was below the basic exemption limit. However, with Budget 2019, a new provision was added to Section 139(1), making it compulsory to file an ITR if you engaged in certain high-value transactions, even if your total income is below the exemption threshold. These transactions include:

  1. Depositing more than INR 1 crore in a current account.
  2. Incurring foreign travel expenses exceeding INR 2 lakh.
  3. Spending over INR 1 lakh on electricity.

Who Can File ITR-4?

The ITR 4 form is suitable for Individuals, Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs), and Partnership firms (other than LLPs) whose total income includes:

  • Income from a business eligible for the Presumptive Taxation Scheme.

  • Income from salary or pension.
  • Income from one house property (excluding cases with carry forward losses).
  • Income from other sources (excluding lottery winnings and income from race horses).

Additionally, HUFs and non-LLP firms with total incomes up to INR 50 lakh can use this form.
